"While the events of this chronicle occurred in the army camp and the town as named in the text and exactly as described, certain of the people who appear are composite portraits of various types encountered. Outside of the principals, no character is based on any one individual."

"Note
There are many kinds of camp followers in the vicinity of American army camps. There is the stray dog who comes from nowhere to make his home close to an abundant mess hall. There is the merchant who moves his business into an army-camp town and trades his goods for the crisp bills and shiny silver that the government pays to its soldiers. There is the prostitute who sets up shop in a trailer or nearby boarding house. And then there is the woman who camp follows neither for money nor for food, but because for the time being she feels herself practically a part of the Army — the soldier's wife.
B. K."
